It's a goddam shame what's going down
how it got to this I do not know
there's a sick sick wind that is blowin' 'round
and the captain's got to go

about you or me he does not give a damn
what a low down dirty snake
with his mind on his money and his money on his mind
something's got to break

like when the hounds start howlin'
when there's fiends about
I will stand up and shout
I declare mutiny on this ship

the captain's been drinking below the deck
and this vessel's headed way off course
I want to wrap my hands around his crooked neck
and throw him overboard
send him to his lord

I don't want to be safe I just want to be free
take back what these old devils have taken from me

He don't need no water
let the motherfucker burn
burn motherfucker burn
